How to Make Fried Pumpkin Blossoms

Description: I remember a neighbor coming to the door with pumpkin blossoms in plastic bags selling for something like a quarter a dozen. We would dredge them in a batter composed of saltine crumbs and egg and pan-fry them in margarine. As dreadful as it sounds, they were impossibly delicious. This recipe comes from my Central Illinois roots.

This Fried Pumpkin Blossom recipe was contributed by: Elizabeth A. Snelson, Central Illinois


1 Dozen Pumpkin Blossoms
3 Eggs
1 dozen Saltine Crackers
To taste Salt
To taste Pepper
1/2  stick Margarine

How to Make Fried Pumpkin Blossoms:
  1. Crush crackers  and place in a shallow bowl.
  2. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Scramble eggs in a second bowl.
  4. Dredge pumpkin blossoms gently in egg batter, then into the cracker crumbs.
  5. The flowers are tender, so it is better to set the blossom in the cracker bowl and pat on the crumbs.  Turn over and repeat.
  6. Place directly into a frying pan with margarine.
  7. Cook until slightly brown.
  8. Remove from pan and place on a paper towel to drain.

  • Use vegetable oil in place of margarine.
